I Love Playing Chess

    Ah, When It Started

    I remember learning chess from reading it in a book, and making my own set out of K'nex and a pizza box I checkered in with a pencil. Eventually I got a glass set and I love it. Still one of my favorite games!

    Chess Is Perfect.

    To me, playing chess is the ultimate experience. It is 64 perfect squares, and 32 pieces, that can never change, they can never be altered, the knight will always move in an "L" shape, the bishop will always move diagonally, etc. Whenever I do anything, whether it's watch a movie...

    A Chequered Past

    I've always had a strange fascination with Chess. For as long as I can remember, the board has held a strangely enigmatic appeal to me. I remember feeling so envious of the people who had a seemingly natural talent for the game, because despite my intrigue I was totally lacking...
